EXFO’s MaxTester 630 is the perfect tool for any service provider deploying multiplay services over single-pair or bonded ADSL2+ and/or VDSL2. Its small form factor, rugged design and easy-to-use menu make it the ideal tool for installation and repair technicians. With the MaxTester 630, the testing process is highly automated and technicians close their jobs quickly and efficiently. The large display of the MaxTester 630 makes it even more user-friendly, and when it comes to saving results, it provides technicians with many connectivity options for uploading tests and compiling reports.
TEST HYBRID ADSL1/2/2+, VDSL2 AND NEWLY DEPLOYED BONDED DSL NETWORKS
The MaxTester 630 is based on the industry-leading Broadcom chipset, which ensures excellent interoperability for VDSL2 and ADSL2+ hybrid networks. The MaxTester 630 also supports the use of Broadcom’s ADSL2+ Nitro mode to negotiate with Broadcom-based DSLAMs in order to achieve data rates as high as 30 Mbit/s (depending on DSLAM setup, loop length, noise influences and circuit quality). Nitro™ is a Broadcom approach that increases the throughput on links by compressing the ADSL2+ ATM header and as a result, requires fewer bits to be transmitted.
Ensuring the highest quality triple-play services to customers is a must for service providers, but it is also a challenge with an aging copper plant and the need to maximize the use of all pairs in the cable bundle. Service providers can offer higher rate/reach by implementing ADSL2+ and/or VDSL2 bonding (using two copper pairs as defined within ITU-T G.998.1, 2) to increase the available data rates and/or the loop lengths to address a new customer service area. Another industry standard method that helps achieve high-quality multiplay is to take noise mitigation to the next level through G.INP (impulse-noise protection and physical-layer retransmission as defined by ITU-T G.998.4) and vectoring (ITU-T G.993.5). These techniques are supported by the MaxTester 630 to ensure consistency with service providers’ noise mitigation methods and procedures.
